Been running the ECO since June of this year. Fuel econimy is still up there (winter blend diesel has hurt though), performance improvements still the same as when it was installed. Really like not having to go through the EGR problems - although as I have read there are many improvements since mine was installed.

All in all, still quite happy with the tune.
One more of the ECO tunes here.
I am very happy with the ECO tune. Vote for keeping as is, tipout works fine for me.
Good to see that you are over 120K on your ride ! Have you already done the timing belt replacement? Just picked up a CRD this summer and the guys tuned it 2 days later. I like it more every day it seems.

Although with the few miles on mine - it can hardly be considered broken in yet.
I have noticed an increase in cranking time also. Though not as bad as posted above. At 40 degrees and above - it is almost instant. Lately been seeing about a 2 sec delay to start at 19 to 20 degree am start temps, and upon start it will very briefly run up to about1300 to 1500 rpm and just as quickly settle to 750.

Also have not seen the glow plug light stay on - just the little blip as the dash goes through it's startup proceedure.
That sounds like the results after the tune went into my 05. Better MPG's, better shifting, and feeling like it should have from the manufacturer. It is nice stuff.

Were the gauges and senders pretty spendy for EGT & boost ?
Yah, the ECO tune is quite high on the fun meter. But then it's hard not to be with the added torque and the right foot planted.
I think that yearly gathering thing is a great idea ! Tune, wrench, mod, and wheel. Maybe some other things too.
Linewarbr - what kind of mileage drop did you see when you upsized your tires ? Did you go to the 245/75's ?
